Between the end of April and the end of July, it is asparagus season, for it is only then that this vegetable is harvested in the German growing areas. In Schrobenhausen, in the heart of the best-known Bavarian growing area, you can discover exciting information and stories relating to the tasty rods all year round.
The European Asparagus Museum, in the former prison tower of the medieval town wall, provides a unique collection on the theme of asparagus. Here, visitors can find out about the plant and its botanical special features, about the laborious cultivation and the harvest and, of course, about the different possibilities for preparing asparagus.
Valuable asparagus dishes and numerous works of art about the “king of vegetables” illustrate the special position that asparagus occupies as a culinary delicacy, not only in this region. In the specially laid beds in the museum's outdoor area, green and white asparagus in various stages of growth are presented and anyone who would like to can learn how asparagus is harvested. This knowledge undoubtedly makes the asparagus specialities in the Schrobenhausen restaurant taste even better.
